Vancouver Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s real. And in no other condition than one related to the spine is this more real. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows it, too. Vancouver back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain efficiently reduces both body and mind pain to let our patients discover an enjoyable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is eased with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Leading causes of disability globally incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis demonstrated how anxiety and depression change a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A recent review of medical studies links these two issues, too. Anxiety and cervical/lumbar disc herniation, mood/anxiety and lower bone mineral density in men, chronic low back pain and depression, life satisfaction improvement and bone loss prevention in postmenopausal women, quality of life deterioration and multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Vancouver Spine Care Centre offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and put control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is here for our Vancouver back pain patients every step of the way. Using anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to increase the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs stop the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. (3) We all need clear minds to deal with life with and without back pain.

THE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY OF BACK PAIN

Depression and anxiety are states of mind most of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently go together with their pain experience. Understandably, higher levels of depression often result from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often comes from deeper beliefs about negative effects of illness, negative emotional views of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Vancouver Spine Care Centre to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Vancouver chiropractic patients and your Vancouver chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study states that symptoms of depression were reduced in such adults who used exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out ahead of the other. Both showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Vancouver Spine Care Centre ensures that Vancouver chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
